Correct Voltage For Powering From Euler??

I finally received my Pine64 2G model and would like to power the device from the Euler port. I have various power adapters of varrying voltages and I have read reports of people using up to 5.2V over USB to power their device due to the voltage drop problem. However, I am not sure how this would apply to the Euler method. These are the power adapters I have:

- Offical Pine64 USB psu               @ 5.0V
- rpi3 Offical USB psu                     @ 5.1V
- GizmoJunkies rpi3 USB psu        @ 5.3v 

I don't want to burn the machine out so just wanted to check with you guys first to see which of the above would be best suited for this! I was leaning toward the rpi3 @ 5.1V but not too sure.

Thanks a bunch!

I think 5.3V is overkill (someone more technical may be able to address this more factually), but 5.1V should be ok.

If using one of those power supplies you describe above, you will need to remove the micro USB connector and fashion your own Euler connector, such as the one shown here.
